Please wait a moment while we get things ready.
We produce compelling promotional videos that help to communicate key project messages. Our videos can encompass our various in-house toolkit outputs in drone work, 3D flythroughs and bespoke animation. Video and animation are a very adaptable way of communicating the vision for a project.
We use drone photography in a number of ways; from ensuring we have the most up-to-date site surveys, to incorporating photographs into our urban and graphic designer's illustrations and visualisations. Photogrammetry techniques allow us to create accurate 3D photorealistic site models.
CHLOE has allowed hundreds of workshop participants to engage in ‘hands-on’ masterplanning. Our intuitive, web-based tool is designed to build an understanding of the choices involved in designing new places, and allows us to capture key themes for our ongoing design work.
Our in-house graphic communication team ensures that a high quality, engaging, and on-brand assembly of documents are produced for each project.
We were awarded the 2020 Planning Awards Award for PlanMaking for our work on the MK2050 Strategic Growth Study.
Opportunities to consult face to face with stakeholders and the public are as relevant as many of the digital consultation alternatives. We can tailor stakeholder and public engagement strategies in response to the requirements of individual projects. We are skilled in designing and leading exhibitions, workshops, stakeholder forums and much more. Incorporating our project branding onto multimedia, printed materials, banners, pop up displays and online services. Our public exhibitions can offer our clients a great way to showcase projects through DLAs varied engagement toolkit.
GIS has become central to much of our practice’s work, strengthening our capabilities at the strategic scale in particular.
Our GIS team assists the design process by collating a strong evidence base of data for a project, uses spatial analysis to test proposals in order to highlight opportunities and/or potential issues before creating a variety of interactive cartographic outputs to share these thoughts to a wider audience. We also use our mapping systems to greater understand consultation feedback responses, for example, to understand spatial patterns of sentiment towards a development proposal.
The Covid19 pandemic has moved so much interaction to the virtual realm. The 2020 Planning White Paper indicates that it is here to stay. Our suite of digital consultation techniques offers a menu of options for our clients, allowing you to choose the approach that will best meet the needs of your engagement strategy. Whether you are looking to mirror a static exhibition, or run a responsive website, we can create something that is tailored specifically to your needs, or for a simpler approach, customise a pre-designed template.
DLA have created a fully-customisable set of templates to meet your project's branding requirements; incorporating everything you would expect from a 'traditional' website.
Something a bit different to the usual vertical-scrolling website, scroll sideways through an exhibition to view content. Detailed content is accessed via the animated information icons.
Visit our Digital Studio to experience a virtual room. At DLA we can redesign this room as the online venue for your virtual engagement event. Think of it as the ‘virtual village hall’ without the draughts! Visitors can view exhibitions, ask questions, join pre-planned discussion groups and much more.
By introducing a clear visual identity or brand for a project, we can help to convey a level of ambition and quality. From single reports, to whole planning applications, websites and exhibitions, branding can aid orientation and build confidence in a scheme, as well as making it easier for other professionals, local planning authorities, stakeholders and the public to clearly understand proposals.
